Three Arrested for Selling Nonexistent Car Insurance
Car insurance fraud is admittedly a problem in Tampa Bay and hurts real life Floridians who are injured in real life car accidents. Such fraud increases rates for all of us and at the same time works to focus increased suspicion on legitimate claims.
The St. Petersburg Times has published multiple stories in the past few months about incidents of Florida drivers either staging accidents or injuries such as this one in February, this one in March and this one in April. But just this week, the St. Petersburg Times ran a story about a different type of insurance fraud. Three Tampa residents were accused of selling auto insurance that was never in fact provided.
Multiple Florida drivers discovered something was not quite right when they received a letter from the State of Florida notifying them that their licenses were suspended for failing to have motor vehicle insurance. Yet others, found out when they were pulled over by police and ticketed for failing to have insurance.
Thankfully the three involved in the insurance fraud are facing multiple charges.
